Premiere of "Boogie Nights", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645668
November 1, 1997
LOS ANGELES TIMES, November 1, 1997
* Best "Boogie Nights" film advertisement
* 2nd day of the original opening of this movie
* Mark Wahlberg - Burt Reynolds & more
A terrific issue on the 2nd day of the premiere of the motion picture hit "Boogie Nights" and perhaps no better issue could be found than this, the leading newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry - the Hollywood area's prime publication.
Note: Where else might one find authentic, poster-size ads for Opening Day showings, in the most desirable Hollywood-area newspaper - as we were lucky enough to obtain this (and others) indirectly from the Los Angeles Times' own collection? It simply doesn't get any better! In over 40 years of collecting, we have yet to see such unique & dramatic coverage with truly top-shelf, eye-catching displayability (see images).
Page 9 of section F has a the terrific, poster-like advertisement for the film which consumes a full page. Also a article on the front page of this section headed: "Mark on Mark: Naked Truth" with photo.
A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant content. Present are the complete sections 1 and VI totaling 46 pages. Great condition.
